The brushes should be free moving, up and down. They float while moving the cleaner with the motor running and the brushes spinning.

I can't get the brush to work or suction or any air flow in the lower part of the vacuum.


Depends on what you mean by 'disconnected the lower part.'

See end of the note for a link to the manual. Dyson doesn't have it directly, and a number of places either want you to download spamware, or only have a non-english copy.

1) If you took the roller all the way out, you will have had to have eased it out of the loop for the drive band, and then eased it back through after cleaning. If it's not through the loop, no drive power. The band is stiff, so it can be a bit of a challenge to pull out far enough to get the roller back through. Use a smooth dowel or other smooth sided lever to pull band out enough to feed the roller back through. (Smooth = not cutting the band)
2) If you didn't take the roller out as in (1), or did feed it back through the belt before closing it all up, then there's a couple of possibilities. A) The brush will not spin if the unit is full-upright. Put your foot on the lower assembly, pull the handle back to the 'I'm about to vacuum something' position, and try again.
B) According to the manual, this model has an 'engage brush' button. The system should start with the brush engaged, but try toggling it with the handle not up-right.

If still not spinning, turn off and unplug. Try spinning the brush by hand. If it spins freely, the clutch to engage the brush isn't engaged. If there is resistance, then it's engaged (unsure if it auto-disengages when powered off. You's want the handle tilted back when you try this).

Need belt 38528- brush belt


belts will stretch when they slip. There no adjustments on beater-bars. The way to prevent this is to have a height adjustment to be high on high pile and low for low pile rugs.

Hoover Whole House Bagless Upright. Belt Changed but Brushes arent moving


Take off the bootom plate and remove the brush assembly. Inspect both ends for any hair, string or anything else that might prevent it from revolving. Check to see that the ends are lubricated with some grease, just a bit. It should take care of the problem. The ends should turn easily and smoothly.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

The brushes stopped turning. I cleaned the filter


Can you rotate the brushes manually (grab some of the yellow bristles and rotate the brushes). If they are not jammed, then your air fan drive is clogged or broken. Air must pass through the fan to spin the brushes... so confirm air flow by powering the machine on and feeling for decent air flow. Clear any obstructions that my restrict air flow....

Noisy brush roll


To me this sounds like the roller could be worn, it may be time to replace, or have it replaced with a new one. Make sure that your machine is off and check by wrigiling it around, if there is exessive movement you have found your problem.I hope this helps.

My hoover spin scrub machine has stopped scrubbing. It still dispenses and pulls up the water, but the brushes don't move. I've checked the on off button for brush control and cycled it to off and back on,...


There is a filter on the front right hand side of my F5871-900 Hoover. If you remove the plastic covering and clean that filter (wet finger may do), you're Hoover will begin spinning again!
